Life on the Fast Track

Life on the Fast Track

In a crouching position, the men leaned forward applying pressure to their starting blocks and then, ‘Bang!!!’ From a well aligned body position, each man pushed both their legs to get the maximum amount of acceleration in order to reach the finishing line first. That is what sprinting is all about. The amount of determination and struggle one goes through in order to reach the finishing line first is almost unimaginable for normal people like is. It is almost super humane and only the ones who goes through with it knows what he had to sacrifice in order to achieve it. You simply do not become Usain Bolt if you want to.
    You have to treat your body like a temple and then you can even dare to imagine that you have a chance out there inside the 100 metres. Did you know that Usain Bolt’s average ground speed equals to 37.58 km/h (23.35 mph) excluding his reaction time. But you should never forget one thing, and that is, you have to be humble to achieve great things. Even after taking the world by storm by breaking the fastest 100 m sprinting record (in 9.58 s) he said “yeah, I am lazy. There's no doubt about that.”There are other greats too like Michael Johnson, Tyson Gay and Maurice Greene who have proved their worth in the sprinting arena. One look into their lives and you would never fall short of the inspiration you were searching for.
